Inspiration the fable with music by Benjamin Godard - The Fox and the Grapes.
This has been done on 300gsm Arches CP paper and then adhered to cradled panel and the sides are painted with white acrylic.
I am part way through the varnish process and I am keeping fingers crossed it is going to be OK. I did spray 4 light coats of gloss varnish before doing the first layer of Polymer but some of the watercolour started to move - horror horror. Quick fix of a light dab in the affected area and then I used the polymer in a little spray bottle as I could only go over the unvarnished part. It will have another layer of varnish tomorrow so anxious wait until then. My next one will definitely be just on paper to be framed as this varnish process is so scary and just when I thought I was getting the hang of it!!
